Finally after a year’s hiatus it feels great to be back to blogging.
Gathoni & I decided to take the time off to set up our other company (Sun Africa Studios) and now that it is finally on its feet, its time to go back sharing some amazing love stories of the wonderful people God has placed in our life. We thank God for his grace & mercies for He has blessed us beyond measure. We are soon expecting our second little angel and we are really excited with the wonderful things that God is doing in our lives. We will share our life story as the days go by.
Thank you for all those who have been checking up on us and we thank God for everyone of you, you are very special to Gathoni & I.
Today, we would like to share a very special proposal we shot some time ago. Erick & Cathy are special friends of ours as we had shot their baby bump session in Mombasa a while ago. Erick contacted me and told me that he wanted to surprise Cathy with a proposal and he wanted us to be part of it.
Before we start on the proposal, I asked Erick how this wondrous love of theirs came to be….
‘We work in the same sector, she works at a CFS (Container Freight Station) and I work for a shipping company. She had come to solicit for some business from our office so we became friends. We started communicating more regularly, then we became best friends all of this within 4 years. We finally decided to go for a gateway just me and her at Baobab Beach Resort in Diani just to hangout as friends. That’s when we realized we have really strong feelings for each other and so we went back to Baobab 2wks later and this time we came out of Diani as boyfriend and girlfriend. We’ve dated for 3years and now we are engaged, so we’ve basically been in each other’s lives for 7yrs’ —–Erick
Location : The Hemingways, Nairobi
Make-up: Make-Up By Koby
Violin: Scott The Violinist
So the plan was that they were to bump into Gathoni & I at the Hemingways as we were doing our own shoot. I would then offer to take a picture of them for ol’ times sake. And then I would position them as the above picture, and Erick would go down on one knee
Slowly I would ask Cathy to turn round and there she would see Erick on his knee popping the BIG Q!
And Cathy could not believe it, we caught her totally off guard. It was the last thing on her mind!!!!
Steve Koby was there capturing it all on video. ***Tears
We need more men out there like Erick, going out of their way to surprise their woman and asking her to spend forever with him
Scott the Violinist serenades the love birds…this was pure perfection
And after she said YES we decided to do a small engagement shoot around the beautiful hotel
Finally, Cathy was the happiest woman on earth
Hemingways is a sweet little gem. Any photographers’ dream
Isn’t love a beautiful thing
A testimony of patient love
The we steppped outside, with a backdrop of the beautiful Ngong hills draped in the breathtaking African sunset
The golden hour in all its beautiful glory
This is so very beautiful
Erick & Cathy are easily the world’s most gorgeous couple
This reflection is stuff for fairy tale fables 🙂
One of my most favourite shots of all time
Every couple needs some lazy sunset walks talking about everything and rejuvenating the old flames of love
While every girl needs a man who will treat her like the queen she is. Your simple task is to find that one man 🙂
Just to be silly with, that is the real essence of this life we have
And together hand-in-hand travel to wild exotic destinations together
Thank you Erick & Cathy for making us part of your beautiful proposal, we wish you nothing but the best of years ahead of you. Continue showing us what it means to be absolutely crazy about one person and giving them your all.
For Love & faithfulness,
